DIY is something you can't fully understand until you mix that first batch of concrete, screte that first quarter pipe, and draw your first cream on a finish. It's fucking rad! It's hard work but nothing compares to building something you and your friends will skate - together. I truly believe this is the absolute essence of skateboarding, the skateboarders that GIVE back not just for themselves, but for everyone around them. So through
meeting new people, he found the DIY spot and so on and so on, I’m sure I’m not the only one living vicariously through the one good foundation he has stumbled upon. So anyway, through all of this, it ends up in my possession a rad skate video called O.L.D. produced by Joel Derek Ortiz... I saw Brad talking about a new video coming out but was slightly distracted at the time with other things so I failed to pay
enough attention to know what was going on... then the video arrives...again, THANK YOU. What does O.L.D. stand for? Take your pick! One Leg Drivers, Obsolete Legendary Dinosaurs, Out Living the Dream, Original Legion of the Desert, “crap like that”... so the envelope came and grabbed a cerveza and got ready for skate video observation…
